Henney’s Vintage Cider

By  •  British

It’s cold wet and windy. The east coast of Australia is getting drenched by a once in a 30 year low pressure system. The streets are under water.

So I’ve picked up a bottle of  Henney’s Vintage Cider. This 2014 vintage is a still cider from England’s west country county of Herefordshire. Read More

One of things I love about reviewing English ciders is the history. Take this Bottle of Wilcox Cheddar Mill Yarlington Mill Medium Cider; you can trace its history all the way back to their first cider press which started work in 1868. History is one thing, but relying on the hard work of your great granddaddy alone does not make a good cider. Have Wilcox made a modern cider with their traditional training?
